THE DREAMIEST TEAM
Yes, we are partial to our instructors because they bring their “A Game” every single time they teach. Everyone on our team is at least 200 hour Certified, but more then that, they are dedicated to a lifetime of learning and exploring their paths. Our talented team of instructors take great pride in what they do and are experts in what they teach. We only ask them to teach what they are absolutely passionate about, allowing them to offer you the highest quality classes with the most heart.
All of our instructors are unique, caring and compassionate individuals who bring their own special flare, experience and knowledge to the mat each and every time they teach. This helps to make Body Bliss Yoga a very diverse and lucky studio to have them.
Please get to know each one of them below. We look forward to seeing you in class!
Jacquie Michelle – Owner
Jacquie Michelle is an E-RYT 500 certified instructor, FRC certified movement specialist, holistic nutritional therapist, podcast host, founder of BloomingHeartWellness and owner of both Body Bliss Yoga Studio and Little Warriors Yoga School. She was first introduced to the idea of yoga at the age of 19 when a good friend gave her a book about conscious breathing and meditation. Later she found her way to the physical practice and immediately fell in love.
Jacquie began her path to becoming a teacher in 2013 studying under Marianne Wells. Later that same year she completed a Children’s Teacher Training. In 2014 she completed an additional 200 hour training with YogaMaze led by Rocky Heron. In 2016 she completed a 300 hour training with Rocky and Noah in LA. She finds joy in teaching both alignment based practices and creative flows. Her classes are well structured, thoughtful, intelligent and a whole lot of fun.
Jacquie teaches Monday afternoon Happy Hour Class-Ground Work at 4:30pm, Monday evening Vinyasa Flow at 6pmpm, Tuesday and Thursday Slow Flow at 12pm, Strength and Stability Fridays at 11:15am, Happy Hour Vinyasa Flow Fridays at 4:30pm and Saturday morning Yoga Fundamentals at 10:30am.

She came to her mat in 2005 for healing, movement and balance in her life. What she learned through her practice was transformative and she was inspired to teach yoga to others. In 2012 she got certified to teach and through teaching, she hopes that others are able to experience a deeper connection with themselves and those they care about.
Her classes are creative, soulful and meant to be a haven for self-expression, curiosity and growth. She enjoys teaching to all levels and believes everyone needs yoga, every single day.

Hello! I’m Kelsey Keagle, and I am a bright, charismatic and compassionate yoga instructor. Yoga has brought me to a path of self-healing, and I want to help others to feel the warmth and good vibes that yoga can bring you. I have a B.A. in Human Nutrition and graduated with a RYT-200 certification from the Yoga Bhoga Teacher Training (Portland, OR) in 2016. I connect with my students, meeting the individual where they are in their own practice.
My classes offer a balanced, thoughtful, and fun approach to yoga, interweaving philosophy with contemporary concepts and postures.
Kelsey teaches Friday 9:30AM Vinyasa.
Danielle received her 200 Hatha/Vinyasa teaching certification from Yoga Bogha in 2007, but yoga has been a personal guide and support since she was a young teenager in the late-90s. Waking up early to chant with her best friend’s mother in Kundalini classes first opened the door to her path. A dancer since age 7, her mind-body connection has been an important part of her career as a physical artist.
When applicable, Danielle loves incorporating her training in dance, somatics, pilates, and improvisational art practices into her teaching, and yet also enjoys the grounded tranquility of traditional asana practices connected to slow, deep, intentional breathing.

Danielle teaches Monday morning Hatha Flow at 9:30AM, and Saturday 9AM Vinyasa.
After a casual home yoga practice, Mari Coryell began classes soon after Body Bliss Yoga opened in Washougal in 2012. The next step to deepening her practice was to join their first yoga Teacher Training.
With an emphasis on helping people stay as active as possible, Mari’s light heart and gentle spirit will gratefully welcome all who wish to share the yoga path. She enjoys supporting people as they find time to breathe, relax and practice self care.
Mari believes that yoga can be a tool for healing and is currently studying for her 500 Hour Certification.
Mari teaches Restorative Tuesday evenings at 7:30, Friday evenings at 6pm and Gentle Yoga Thursday evenings at 7:30.
A mat is a must for everyBODY. A mat allows breathing and moving in ways the world does not. Deena’s goal as a yoga teacher is to unite anyBODY with their mat. Deena met her own mat in 2013 while on a medical leave from her job at Clark College. Her mat provided her a safe space to really get to know her body and strengthened her mental resilience to return to full-time work teaching Communication Studies. In 2017, her mat encouraged her to dive deeper, and she enrolled and completed the RYT 200 hour Fly High Yoga Teacher Training certification in 2018. Deena continued her studies with Yoga for All Teacher Training with Amber Karnes and Dianne Bondy in order to deepen her practice of safely guiding all body types through a meaningful date with their mat. Deena offers Yin on Monday Nights at 7:30pm.
